Abstract: An interesting survey of the changing representations of
aboriginality and environment in children's books over the past century.
Dr. Edwards' paper provides important context in the evolution of the
"Ecological Indian" in children's literature and will be of great
interest to historians interested in mid-century environmentalism.
